I'm not sure what you're asking but I'm not aware of an automated way to download the VMPS file other than having a script login to the switch and run the necessary command. I don't think it's possible to push the file to the switch.
I assume your Cat 6500 is running CatOS? The 'reconfirm-interval' as Cisco calls it is 60 minutes. I take it this means that every hour the Cat 6500 requests the VMPS file. To change this default, try the following:
You are correct. Reconfirm command and its default timings apply only to the clients. Only way to get the file to the server (in this case Cat 6000) is through "download vmps". I was not able to find any reference in regards of the "auto" timings for this command. However, I did figure out different approach. A script that will be initiated by cron every 5 minutes on the Unix box. The script will telnet to the switch and execute "download vmps" to get updated information.
However, I do have another VMPS question. Has anyone implemented it at the large scale? At the first phase of the implementation I am planning to have about 5000 or so MAC entries in the VMPS file. Would this be to much for one server and one file? Does anyone has any ideas?
